Urban Foraging Tour of Druid Hill Park
June 11, 2011 — 9:00am - 12:00pm
THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT!!! THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST!
Food from Druid Hill Park? What!? Yes, indeed you can find food right in the City's urban parks. Tour the park with forager, committed locavore, botanist, and author Leda Meredith. Leda will be sharing her wisdom and teaching us how to identify edibles in the urban terrain. At the end of the foraging walk, we will have a Q & A with Leda as we taste treats made with wild edible ingredients.
We recommend you wear comfortable shoes and bring a bag lunch, water, a pen and paper, and perhaps a camera to record the plants you've found.
We will meet at 9:00 a.m. at the Disc Gold Course in Druid Hill Park. Click here for a map.
